Photorejuvenation Q&A

What is photorejuvenation?

Photorejuvenation is an anti-aging and skin-correcting therapy that uses intense pulsed light (IPL™) to treat a wide variety of skin problems, including:

  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Rosacea
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Large pores
  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Red and brown pigmentation

Photorejuvenation using IPL can help revitalize your skin and improve dull complexions. The treatment is gentle and nonablative, but still very effective at gradually improving your skin’s health. There’s no downtime, either, so photorejuvenation is ideal for men and women with a busy schedule. Plus, most treatments only take about 20 minutes.

What is the difference between IPL and AFT photorejuvenation?

Both types of photorejuvenation use intense pulsed light to treat skin problems.

During an IPL treatment, your provider uses high-energy light waves to minimize wrinkles and discolorations and to encourage new collagen production. The procedure causes minimal discomfort, and many women and men report feeling a warm sensation, like the snapping of a rubber band, as the intense pulsed light penetrates your skin. After an IPL treatment, your skin may be red and tender to the touch for several hours.

With Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) photorejuvenation, this cutting-edge IPL therapy uses short-wavelength light. This increases the light energy’s ability to go below the surface of your skin while maximizing your comfort level. AFT energy operates at a lower frequency than IPL, so it minimizes the risks of adverse effects on your skin and reduces any discomfort that’s associated with other types of IPL treatments.

What can I expect with AFT photorejuvenation?

Although you may need more than one treatment to achieve the results you desire, AFT photorejuvenation takes just 20 minutes and is gentle on your skin. With each treatment, you’ll see a gradual reduction in wrinkles, improved skin tone, and improvement with other signs of aging or discoloration. Over time, your skin will become healthier and refreshed, as new tissue regenerates and replaces the damaged tissue.

If you have problems with acne or rosacea, or if you simply want to improve your overall skin tone and texture, photorejuvenation treatments are a convenient, time-saving, virtually pain-free solution.
